Dreams Realized: Monteverde Orchid Garden and Canopy Walk
La Orquidea Locos (Those Crazy Orchid People in Costa Rica)
After another wonderful lunch, our plotting and planning brought us to the Hanging Bridge walk at Selvatura Park in San Elena Forest. Along suspension bridges across the valleys of the hills of the San Elena Cloud Forest, through the canopy we walked in the heavy mist. It is a completely different perspective from the treetops. The clouds and lists swirled amongst the trees laden with epiphytes, ferns and orchids. Thoroughly soaked, but with smiles on our faces, we gathered at Monteverde Lodge to enjoy the sunset afterwards.
